Anaheim vs Carolina

Anaheim vs Carolina

The Ducks conquered the Carolina Hurricanes, 4-1, thanks to decisive goaltending by Jonas Hiller.

The Ducks were able to score three goals in the first period, and Hiller held the Hurricanes scoreless till the third period. The first two goals of the game were scored by Scott Niedermeyer, once a top scorer for the Ducks, but has been quiet this season so far. Teemu Selanne and Ryan Getzlaf scored the final two goals for the Ducks.

The Hurricanes had 37 shots, while the Ducks only had 27. Even though the Ducks were outshot, they were able to capitalize on four of those shots, resulting in an assured victory in Carolina.

The Ducks were able to defend all four of the Hurricane's powerplays. This marks 18 penalties that the Ducks have successfully killed in a row.

The Ducks next take on the Redwings, a longtime rival, in Detroit. This will be a tough contest for the Ducks, with the continuous absences of Francois Beauchemin and Brian Sutherby to injuries.
